🔬 casually interested in and social determinants of health and 🎮 narrative-based games

@Louisa "Our house is not haunted. The moaning and rattling at night is in no way location-based. That is to say, members of the house are personally haunted, but it has nothing to do with the location itself. It's more of an Ebenezer Scrooge situation and we want to assure you that the hauntings will not be directed at you, at least not due to being guests in the house itself. For being patrons of ours, maybe, but that's not the house's fault."

If you use & want to help support the Afro-Indigenous femme that started it you can either donate to my liberapay, or sign up to my DIY content subscription service, all links on my profile. Don't erase me from my work.
